Ranch: Finally, A Good Light Version

weight watchers ranchPinterest is my go to for new recipes and where to keep everything I’ve found. I’ve recently gone back on Weight Watchers and was looking for some good easy recipes for lunch when I stumbled on a ranch that said it was 1 WW+ point! ONE! Per serving.

“Okay, what’s the serving amount?” I wondered. Ah, two tablespoons. Pretty decent but ideally I might want a little more. As I plugged it into my handy dandy points calculator I realized I could have four tablespoons if I wanted for 1 WW+ point!

I am a ranch person and am NOT a fan of light ranch. I think it’s gross, so I was a little worried this might be gross too as it has light ingredients.

Well let me assure you, I’ll be making this for myself from now on, whether I’m on Weight Watchers or not.

The recipe comes from Midlifeboulevard.com. Enjoy!


  • 1-3/4 cups of buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup light mayo
  • 1 ounce package of Hidden Valley Ranch Packet salad dressing and seasoning mix


Put all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk together. I love my little Kitchenaid hand mixer and it mixes it so quickly. Once it’s mixed, put it in a container and let it sit in your refrigerator for at least an hour to thicken up.

If you’re like me the first time you made it, you will say “but AH! I want to try it now!”

To speed up that process, put it in the freezer for 20 minutes. I did that and it thickened up just fine!

The website said the recipe could last two to three weeks depending on the date of the buttermilk.


The recipe makes 2-1/4 cups and the serving is 2 tbsp. And if you’re like me… you can have up to 4 tbsp and be at 1 WW+ point.
